I know I can't be the only one looking to blow a handsome sum of money ($712) on something as useful as a Blu-ray burner. Good thing I-O Data will have just what I need once February rolls around. Granted, its burner doesn't do anything that other such burners don't already do (its 2X BD-R/BD-RE read/write speed is in line with other manufacturers' efforts), but it is slightly less expensive than the big guys' offerings. And as soon as you can effectively backup PS3 games (and I can afford a PS3), Blu-ray burners will look all the more attractive.
